Panthers take 2 from Oak Harbor / Baseball

The Snohomish High School baseball team swept a conference doubleheader from visiting Oak Harbor Friday, April 12.

A game between the teams schedule for Wednesday, and then Thursday, was rained out and added to the already scheduled game for Friday.

Snohomish won 12-4 in the opener and then rallied for four runs in the final inning of the nightcap to win 7-6.

The wins helped the Panthers jump to second place in the tightly packed middle of the Wesco North. Arlington leads the division with a 9-0 record (11-0 overall), followed by Snohomish (8-5, 8-7), Everett (7-5, 9-5), Marysville-Pilchuck (5-5, 5-7) and Oak Harbor (4-5, 5-7).

Oak Harbor takes on Stanwood (3-9, 4-10) for three 4 p.m. games this week. The Wildcats and Spartans meet in Oak Harbor on Tuesday and Friday, April 16 and 19, and in Stanwood Wednesday.

The Wildcats, playing as the home team in the first game, scored three runs in the first inning and then didn’t add another until the seventh.

The Panthers tied the game with a pair of runs in the third and then pulled away with 10 runs over the next two innings.

Andrew Dixon had two hits and two RBI for Oak Harbor. Austin Boesch, Noah Meffert, Taylor Rummel, Thomas Anderson, Aiden McCarthy and Caleb Fitzgerald all singled.

Oak Harbor scored five runs in the second inning and took a 6-3 lead into the bottom of the seventh.

Snohomish entered the seventh with only three hits, but rapped four consecutive singles after a lead-off walk, then used an error and a wild pitch to finish the comeback.

Boesch paced Oak Harbor with two hits; Rummel, Anderson, Dixon, McCarthy and Fitzgerald all had one each.
